Computer people - I need help!

Postby Trademarkbark » Fri Feb 24, 2006 6:48 pm

I have a wdb and/or dbf file that I need to open and print mailing labels from. Can anyone help me?? I tried to open the wdb as a Word file and now that's all the computer will do -- it won't let me try anything else. And I can open the dbf with some free software but it won't let me save or copy anything, so that's pretty useless!

Help!!

If you righ-click on the file in Windows Explorer, it will give you "Open with..." as one of the choices. Click on that and it will give you several options of programs.

To get Word as a default program for opening again, just right-click on any text document and use Word to open it.

Let me know if that helps!

I can get it to open as dbf (I downloaded some freeware) but it doesn't show the address and it won't let me save it.

I just asked Panther and he said you could try importing it into Excel. If you don't have it on your computer, Open Office has a similar one that's free.
